More information 

 

At Blossom, we utilize an integrated learning approach which mixes Montessori style peer-to-peer learning, traditional instructor interaction and hands-on experiences. Our curriculum focuses on teaching skills through self-guided computer modules, fun experiments and hands-on activities. 

 

Every student will learn to code. The ability to code is arguably second only to reading as the most important skill to have in our emerging economy. As such, devoting some time each session to introductory coding principles is a staple of our skills-based curriculum.

 

Our student's safety is our number one concern. We work closely with university event staff to develop emergency readiness plans, and our staff members have undergone comprehensive safety training. All of our staff are Red Cross CPR/First Aid certified and have undergone background checks. Our site director is trained in the administration of prescription drugs to minors and how to keep a medical log. Protocols for secure child drop-off and pick-up are emailed after registration, and lines of contact with legal guardians established. Strict supervision ratios of 10:1 are kept at all times, and adults are never left alone with a child.
